Sunshine Canyon to be Temporarily Open to Bicycles Nov. 10 (8 a.m.-Noon)

Wednesday, November 06, 2013

Boulder County, Colo. – Sunshine Canyon from City of Boulder limits to the end of the pavement will be open to cyclists this Sunday, Nov. 10, from 8 a.m.-12 p.m. This is a one-time event and will be evaluated to determine possible future events.

What: Cycling temporarily allowed in Sunshine Canyon
When: 8 a.m.-12 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 10
Who: All motorists and cyclists allowed
Where: From City of Boulder limits to the end of the pavement. ** Do not attempt to travel on Poorman Road
      or anywhere past the end of the pavement. These roads are still heavily damaged and, for user safety,
     are restricted. Violation of this request could result in a citation and/or discontinuation of this type of event. **

Boulder County Transportation would like to thank and show appreciation to both motorists and cyclists for their continued patience while we repair the roads as quickly as possible. We want to remind all residents that while we are making progress on repairing the roads, we still have more to do (please refer to for updates). The county is aware that one of the main reasons to live here is for the extensive recreational opportunities — of which, many were damaged during the flood. During this challenging recovery phase, please be considerate to residents in heavily damaged areas and do not take this as an opportunity to sight-see their tragedy. 

Please respect both the motorists and cyclists right to the road. To ease this tension, staff will be present for outreach purposes. 

For more information about this event, or for information about alternative cycling routes during road reconstruction, please contact Hannah Polow at 720-564-2864 or
